David Brown Not to Head Coming Joint Campaign

David A. Brown, national chairman of the United Jewish Campaign since September, 1925, will not accept the leadership of the forthcoming combined United Jewish Campaign and United Palestine Appeal for Palestinian and European activities, as it has been presumed, according to a letter which he has just sent out to co-workers in the campaign.

“I have definitely stated that under no circumstances can I accept any important responsibility in the contemplated campaign,” says Mr. Brown in his letter. “That my heart shall always be with any effort to relieve the conditions across the seas goes without saying. The chances are that I shall accept such responsibilities as will come to ‘a worker in the ranks,’ and shall be happy to render such service as will be possible in the light of my many other activities and responsibilities.”
